Pedro ‘n’ Pip by Taylor Barton ( is a charming book that combines a story about a seagoing  rescue mission with song.

The tale centers around a brave and adventuresome 9-year old named Pip who gets involved in environmental activities when she meets an octopus named Pedro who needs her assistance when an oil spill occurs in the Gulf of Mexico. What makes this book unique is its combination of story with song, as each book includes a free card to download the songs included in the story.  This book is a gentle way to teach kids about being responsible stewards of the plant and the importance of treating all of the creatures who inhabit land and sea with care.
